    • low long-term consumption of 23 kWh per 100 km though I’m constantly demonstrating to people the car’s performance

    • OTA updates (continuous improvement of the vehicle)

    • highly functional Autopilot (on motorways it usually manages 99% of the journey for me)

    • the Michelin Pilot Sport summer tyres withstood an incredible 54,000 km

    • warranty on the entire drive system including battery 240,000 km/8 years

    • no problem driving long distances - the Supercharger network is a great bonus for every Tesla

    • second generation air suspension

    • total power 600 kW, torque 1,000 Nm

    • solid charging speed, max. 150 kW (10-90 % in 40-45 minutes)

    • decent range on the highway of 400 km in summer and 300 km in winter

    • resilience of the drive and chassis

    • relatively large frunk

    • no door compartments

    • during acceleration, front axles slightly vibrate (weakness of the Tesla S and Tesla X - warranty replacement)

    • misplacement of the windscreen washer reservoir filler neck

    • at the time of ordering, ventilated seats could not be ordered (today it is possible)

    • the car is quite wide and long for the city, making parking really tight
